Karlie Kloss is perpetually on the go. One minute, she's seat-dancing front-row at the American Music Awards alongside BFF Taylor Swift, and the next she's soaking in an infinitely pool in Big Sur. So, it's no surprise that she has airport style down to a science.
Her travel look is all about the basics, but the result is far from, well, basic. For her flight out of JFK this week, the model topped her go-to gray hoodie with a classic Burberry trench, then added unfailingly chic, black skinny jeans. Stretch denim's a must if you find yourself squashed into a middle seat for hours on end, because they feel like leggings but look infinitely better. Karlie nixed accessories (who has the time?), save for a pair of French-favorite skimmers. When you're racing against the clock to catch a flight and stripping off layer after layer to get through security, ballet flats are a no-brainer. And, you just can't beat classic Repettos. Add iced coffee and headphones (necessary!), and you'll be home for the holidays (in style) in no time.

Narrowly beating the biggest travel day of the year by a few hours, Karlie Kloss was photographed in New York City at John F. Kennedy International Airport in black skinny jeans, a timeless Burberry trench, and Repetto ballet flats. And an iced Dunkin, because she's human, too.

Don't hedge your bets on wool when you're traveling. Cashmere will keep you warm without irritating your skin.

A cult classic for good reason — no one else makes ballet flats this flawlessly.
